Ayanna Howard is the host of the widely-viewed TED Talk, Make Robots Smarter, and professor and chair at the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In this presentation, she’ll cover whether the advance of AI and robotic technologies will be our closest partners or a threat to our jobs, safety, and well-being. 

Ayanna will also explain how she develops robots and other AI functions by incorporating everything she knows about human intelligence, behavior, and neuroscience, with the aim of producing human-like machines that can empathize and reciprocate trust from actual people. She’ll cover that by making robots and AI smarter and more human-like, we can make them less like the dangerous cyborgs of science fiction.

In his book, The Ultimate Guide to a Digital Workforce Experience: Leap for a Purpose, Jason Averbrook offers a guide to the future of HR and how HR  leaders can shape the future of work. And in this session, Jason will look at what it means when the people you’re hiring and managing have better tech on their wrists than you use to find, hire, and onboard them. 

He’ll cover why it’s time to close the digital experience gap between being at work and away from work, and why HR needs to be the one to close that gap. He’ll discuss the role of HR and next-gen technologies as being not to serve the HR function, but to make it easier for HR to interact with and lead the workforce.

Jason is an author, industry analyst and co-founder and CEO of Leapgen, a provider of global HR consulting and advisory services.
